USD/CHF four-hour chart

 
The market broke above the 0.9800 figure and the rising wedge upper trendline. If bulls maintain the market above the 0.9800 figure it would be considered a bullish sign which can lead to further gains towards the 0.9830 and 0.9850 levels. On the flip side, a daily close below the 0.9800 figure could see a re-integration of the wedge with a potential decline towards the 0.9770 level. 
 
 
 
Resistance: 0.9830, 0.9850, 0.9870
